Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

Made with Repix (http://repix.it)

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, a passionate tale of friendship, betrayal, and romance.

At twenty-two years old, Sydney has a great life: She’s in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her best friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers Hunter’s cheating on her–and she is left trying to decide what to do next.

Sydney becomes captivated by Ridge, her mysterious neighbor. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to the passionate way he plays his guitar every evening out on his balcony. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either. When their inevitable encounter happens, they soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one…

Original music created for Maybe Someday by musician Griffin Peterson can be accessed through the website listed in the ebook and paperback.

Yet another amazing book by Colleen Hoover that I can’t really put into words at how incredible it is. Damn…

Katiebird Reviews: Tied by Emma Chase

Made with Repix (http://repix.it)

 

In the fourth sexy romance by the New York Times bestselling author of Tangled and Twisted, Drew and Kate can’t wait to tie the knot—if they can survive the pre-wedding festivities.

For most of my life, I never imagined I’d get married. But Kate did the impossible: she changed me. I think we can all agree I was pretty frigging awesome before, but now I’m even better.

The road to this day wasn’t all rainbows and boners. There were mistakes and misunderstandings worthy of a Greek tragedy. But Kate and I made it through with our inexhaustible lust, boundless admiration, and everlasting love for one another intact.

That being said, there were some unexpected incidents in Vegas last weekend that could have been a problem. It was kind of… my final test.

I know what you’re thinking—what the hell did you do this time? Relax. Let’s not judge, or call for my castration, until you’ve heard the whole story.

And hold on tight, because you’re in for a wild ride. Did you expect anything less?

If you haven’t figured it out yet, then you’ve been missing out for sure. We f*cking adore Drew Evans here at BT. Seriously there isn’t another book boyfriend that makes me laugh like Drew. I didn’t realize how much I missed him until I started reading Tied. Don’t misunderstand, I loved Twisted. We got Kate’s side of the story, but I love being in Drew’s head more.

Katiebird Reviews Rusty Nailed by Alice Clayton

Rusty Nailed by Alice Clayton

Book summary:

In this sequel to Wallbanger, the second book in the Cocktail series, fan favorites Caroline and Simon negotiate the rollercoaster of their new relationship while house-sitting in San Francisco.

Playing house was never so much fun—or so confusing. With her boss on her honeymoon, Caroline’s working crazy long hours to keep the interior design company running—especially since she’s also the lead designer for the renovation of a gorgeous old hotel on Sausalito. So with her hotshot photographer boyfriend gallivanting all over the world for his job, she and Simon are heavy-duty into “absence makes the heart grow fonder” mode. Neither has any complaints about the great reunion sex, though! Then Simon decides he’s tired of so much traveling, and he’s suddenly home more. A lot more. And wanting Caroline home more, too. Though their friends’ romantic lives provide plenty of welcome distraction, eventually Caroline and Simon have to sort their relationship out. Neither wants “out of sight, out of mind,” but can they create their own happy mid-ground cliché?

 

There are so many things that I love about Alice’s writing, besides the fact that I’ve been reading her work for years. She makes me laugh out loud, not many authors can do that. She makes me giggle at her female characters, roll my eyes at myself, and swoon over her male characters.

Katiebird Reviews Better Deeds Than Words by Georgina Guthrie + Giveaway!

Better Deed than Words cover

 

Book Summary:

Aubrey and Daniel’s vow to pursue their dangerous romance despite university regulations takes them down a path of secrecy and lies. With only six weeks left to the end of term, they’re under the constant watch of David Grant—Daniel’s “Dean of Students” father. If that weren’t enough to pressure them, Daniel’s checkered past also casts a shadow over the young lovers who continuously tempt fate until one wrong move leads to an inevitable disaster. Can they salvage a relationship when everything seems to be conspiring against them?

I love when a book that made my “Most Anticipated Books” for 2014, exceeds my expectations. I fell in love with Daniel and Aubrey, or Sailor and Poppet, last year in the first book, The Weight of Words. Better Deeds Than Words is the second book in the Words series.

If you can’t tell that we are HUGE fans of Helena Hunting’s books and Hayden Stryker, then you’ve been missing out, for sure!!

Gel got inspired with an Illustrated Temptations post here

Music is a big part of my life, and certain books really effect me. I love when characters or a book will inspire me to put my music library on while reading or just stay with me after I’m done. Here are some songs that came to mind while reading or made me think of the book and characters when I wasn’t reading about them.
